GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES BUSY RACING SCHEDULE FOR 2014
BECHTELSVILLE, PA January 3, 2014 . . . One of the busiest schedules of racing events in a number of years has been announced for NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway. The one-third-mile, banked clay track, considered one of the most successful weekly short tracks in the nation, will offer more than 40 auto racing events during the 2014 season. The 2014 season will mark the 52nd anniversary season of stock car racing at the Berks County auto racing facility.
Action will kick off with the traditional free-to-the-public practice session, open to all forms of competition, set for Saturday, March 29th at noon. This is also the opportunity for 2014 season pass holders to choose their reserved seat for the new season.
Officially racing action will get the green flag on Saturday, April 5, 7 p.m. with an exciting tripleheader show of NASCAR 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman racing being offered. These will be the first point events of the season.
The first of nine scheduled Enduro events will take place at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 6th.
NASCAR 358 Modifieds will be featured in the first special event of the season when they complete in twin 20-lap features on Saturday, April 12th at 7 p.m. The Late Models and Sportsman will run in their regular 25 lap features. Qualifying events will be presented for all divisions.
The first of four Open Wheel Spectaculars will be presented on Sunday, May 4th, 7:30 p.m. and will feature the TSRS 305 sprints along with the American Racing Drivers Club wingless midgets.
Seven features will make up the Sunday, May 25th Thunder on the Hill Racing Series season opener.
